Very likely, yes. The only theoretical concerns with soymilk lie in the fact that soy is high in isoflavones and phyto-estrogens, plant hormones which act as weak estrogens in the body. Trying to determine their exact effect has been difficult. One study linked levels of soy consumption of the pregnant mother inversely to the male child's penis size- the more soy consumed during pregnancy, the smaller the penis, but this was only an observational study, not an experimental one, so it's not known if the soy actually caused a reduction in penis size, or if other factors were at play. Again, it's not as though the study could pinpoint soy as the cause for these findings. A moderate soy intake will probably not cause any trouble. Consult your OBGYN if you have any other questions.

Milk During Pregnancy Milk should be approached with caution, especially during pregnancy. Most dairy cows are treated with growth hormones to get them to supply to unnecessar…y demand. Pasteurized milk destroys the good bacteria in the human body and hinders the development of immunity. This is especially important for pregnant women because the body is so focused on feeding the fetus that the mother is more susceptible infection and illness. If you insist on drinking milk - cow or otherwise, be sure to consume high quality probiotics - not the junk found in Activa Yogurt, but the kind found in the fridge at the health food store, and make sure it is at least 20 billion plus per capsule. Also, if you insist on drinking milk make sure it is organic from a reliable source. There are far better calcium alternatives available that do not put expectant mothers at risk.
Commercially prepared eggnog is made from pasteurized eggs, therefore it is safe for pregnant women. Homemade eggnog made with raw eggs is not safe, as it can contain salmonel…la. Yes, as long as it's pasteurized (which is a given with store-bought egg nog). Homemade egg nog with raw eggs is NOT okay due to salmonella risks.

I would have to say yes because of my 8 years of college for my Ph.D. Yes i am fully confident that high protein drinks will not cause any harm, and if their isn't any warning… sign saying do not drink while pregnant then it should be ok to drink.
Yes, presuming the milk is fresh and has beenproperly refrigerated. The main concerns with dairy products in pregnancy relates to soft cheeses, such as ricotta and feta. These… foods are more prone than most to the bacteria listeria which can kill an unborn child.
Opponents of soy milk as a healthy alternative claim that it contains "phytoestrogens" or chemicals found in plants. This chemical is believed to be the catalyst for the dange…rs of soy milk because they can affect the body in the same way that the female hormone estrogen does. This is said to negatively affect men who regularly consume soy causing problems with their thyroid and possibly even fertility. Studies also show the possibility of a rise in the risk for endometrial cancers when women consume high levels of phytoestrogens. Wait a minute! These phytoestrogens sound the same as isoflavones. Aren't the isoflavones said to be one of the benefits of soy milk? Well here is the breakdown on it. Phytoestrogens are phytochemicals, or natural chemicals found in plants. Phytoestrogens, imparticular, exerts weak, estrogen like effects on the body. Isoflavones are a type or group of phytoestrogens which are thought to be positive. Again, this group of isoflavones is thought to aid in preventing cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis and menopausal symptoms. Scientists say that there are also drawbacks to the isoflavones which might be the source for negative reports. Of course there are first off some people who are allergic to soy. There are also warnings for pregnant and nursing women as they are not sure of the long term affects of the soy isoflavones on babies. Men with prostrate cancer should avoid soy products, as well as women with certain types of tumors. It is also important to note that soy has been associated with hypothyroidism in some. Overall, I've decided to stick with using soy milk. From my research, I found that many of the negative reports or studies on soy milk were funded by dairy associations. I would hesitate however after reading reports to make soy a major part of my diet I believe that soy definitely has it's benefits, but as with anything else, it is best consumed in moderation.

People drink soy milk for various reasons. Some people are lactose-intolerant and cannot drink regular milk, so they choose soy instead. Other people prefer the taste of s…oy milk. Still others might choose soy for its purported health benefits.
If what is printed on the carton is 'Best before' it will still be all right to use. Empty the soy milk into a jar and stir, as the sediment will settle if not used for some t…ime. What you have to look out for are products that have have the words 'Use by,' if the date has expired these need to be flushed. Rule - "If in doubt throw it out."
